Move for the Kids 2018

The Action Jackson's









Just thought I'd give you a quick update on Jackson.  Since his diagnosis of ALL(Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) in September of 2016, Jack has been doing quite well.  If you didn't know already, you probably couldn't tell that he's sick.  He's been relatively healthy, avoiding the flu(so far) and hasn't had many colds or coughs, but has had a couple ER visits for fevers. (common protocol to get blood work)  We missed out on a spring break vacation last year because of some chemo toxicity that put us in the hospital for a week, but we were able to take him to Disney World last fall to make up for that.  He played spring and fall soccer last year and is signed up for spring soccer this year.  He didn't have the strength last year to make the whole 5k(we cut through some parts), but this year we have a goal to make it all the way.  He's still on daily chemo pills and goes for IV treatment every 4 weeks.  Barring any setbacks, our end of treatment day will be around November of 2019.  That's about 23 more visits.  I know, it seems like an eternity already.  The rest of the family has adjusted to our new way of life and we're all so thankful for the support we have gotten up to this point.  Like Jack, there's so many kids in need of our continued support at this great hospital and miracles are happening everyday because of it.  Thanks to everyone that contributed last year and thanks in advance to all who will be part of team this year.  Let's do this!
